The constituting session of the Delegation for relations with Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo was held in the European Parliament. It was chaired by the head of the Croatian delegation of the EPP in the European Parliament Dubravka Šuica, who was elected vice-president, while Tonino Picula (S&D) was elected president of the Delegation. By establishing the delegation just a day after the general elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), the European Parliament showed great resolve to continue to closely monitor the situation in BiH and provide assistance, while requesting from the newly-elected officials to initiate determined reforms which will secure the functioning of the state at all levels. The goal of such action is to make sure that BiH follows the European path and that it will soon be able to join the enlargement process together with the other countries in the region which have attained the status of a candidate or are in negotiations for accession. The Parliament will pay special attention to the progress of BiH and Kosovo, which is evidenced by the founding of the Delegation which will only deal with the situation in these two countries.
